This is a very special post dedicated to a very special group. I love this group oh so much. They offer interactive concerts for free to help enhance the quality of life for people on the spectrum. and when I say people on the spectrum just because a person is autistic doesn’t mean their family is not involved in the spectrum too! The work Music For Autism does aims to improve the lives of those on the spectrum may they be young or slightly older. Based in New York, I love reading the comments from the parents, the musicians and the teachers. Reading their stories is so inspiring. I wish there were more things like this for children with Autism, all it takes is a kind heart and a little bit of charity to start something like this up.
The world is too Neuro Friendly for my liking. If we could change how the Big Wigs in the fancy cabinet see us then we can change what services we need and make them more friendly towards us.
Lubbock and Cairne established Music for Autism 14 years ago to help share their love of music with those on the spectrum. They do so much for not only those with autism but also schools and
“In addition to funding concerts, Music for Autism has supported special units and schools for children with autism. The charity’s music education and equipment grants have furnished sensory rooms and provided school transportation and school supplies for children. Today Music for Autism has a well-established presence in the United Kingdom, holding numerous fundraising and interactive concerts each year throughout Great Britain”.
I urge you to support them and I hope not to sound like Tesco here when I say Every Little Helps but it really does. As a community we need to be able to support one another. I will leave a link to their donation page at the end of this blog.
